About the Presentation
Intuition is a deep, inner knowing that can radically influence the way we experience our personal and professional lives. When it’s time to make an important decision, how do we go about making it? From what place in our being does the wisest decision come? Is it possible to consciously cultivate our capacity for inner guidance and clear seeing? In this engaging experiential presentation, we will creatively explore the key role that intuitive awareness plays in the process of psychological and spiritual maturation.
